Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!
Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.
Looks like she went straight from The Gambia to Uzbekistan.
Presumably the May Day Parade was included. I wanted to make sure the first lot were Samarkand and the second Bukhara, but Vladimir Ilyich can not be found today (by me)
I’ve been trying to find the fate of this statue of Lenin. Nearly all were torn down and Vladimir Illych replaced by globes, kittens etc. Often it was done late at night.
The cleansing of history for this particular statue appears complete as I cannot find an image of it at all. Perhaps it was a papier mache one put there for the day.
